Checking out the movie MOONRISE KINGDOM

MOONRISE KINGDOM is about a very oiled and organized scout troup of young boys on an island.  They are very rigid with military protocol and rules and regulations.  I think it is a farce on training kids to be in a military state of mind all the time.

One maverick free thinker kid goes against the grain and his interaction with the some of the local island people, well, goes outside the box and  that makes the story.

The scout boys are so militarily-group-think they do almost everything in a humorous cadence.  There are plenty of symbolisms and classical music that sets the mood of each scene perfectly.  I think it was a great movie.

The stars I reconized were Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, and Frances McDormand.

After the movie was over  I was thinking about it I recalled another movie Bill Murray was in that same tone of young boys in an organization with rigid rules and that movie is RUSHMORE.  It was good too.  Both MOONRISE KINGDOM and RUSHMORE were directed by Wes Anderson.
